Teacher Has Sex With Boy, 16 – Busted When Mother Found Her UNDERWEAR Under Boy’s Bed

A teacher arrested for allegedly having sex with a 16-year-old student was busted when the boy’s mother found her underwear under his bed.

Christine Powell, 39, from Middletown, Connecticut, allegedly had a two-year relationship with the boy, whom she taught at two schools.

The mother-of-two, who is currently going through a divorce, is also accused of sending the boy naked pictures from her cell phone.

According to her arrest warrant, she told police that the relationship, which allegedly began when he was in eighth grade and became sexual in early 2011, was not just physical.

‘She said that they truly loved each other and that they had planned on moving out of state together after the victim turned 18,’ the warrant said.

The pair met when she taught him in a special education program at Woodrow Wilson Middle School. She continued to tutor him after he started at Middletown High School, before moving there herself in 2011.

The boy began babysitting her children in 2010. She would drive the boy and his friends around and signed them passes to be late for class.

Colleagues began to notice the alleged relationship and became concerned about how much time they were spending together.

One colleague allegedly visited Powell’s house and found the student and a friend in her pool, while Powell answered the door ‘wearing only a bikini’, according to the warrant reported by the Hartford Courant.

Another colleague claimed Powell had locked her classroom door. When she unlocked it, he found Powell alone with the student and they ‘scrambled away’ from each other on seeing her enter the room.

The colleague, Sarah Cardella, eventually left her job as she was so uncomfortable about the situation, the Courant reported.

School administrators even told Powell she could not spend time alone with the student and must tutor him in the library in front of other people.

Eventually, in November 2011, the student’s mother informed police that she was worried her son was having a sexual relationship with Powell.

She told police she had found the woman’s Victoria Secret underwear and a class ring with her name on it under her son’s mattress.

The boy, who had initially told police he thought of Powell as ‘a big sister’, admitted they had a sexual relationship. But he ‘said he was always willing to have sex with her and that she never forced or pressured him,’ according to the warrant.

When police confronted Powell, she admitted the underwear was hers. They asked if they would find any naked pictures on her iPhone that she sent the boy.

‘She nodded her head and quietly said yes,’ according to the warrant, as reported in the Courant.

‘I asked her if it was because they were having sex together, and she said yes. She started to cry and said she was losing her job and going to jail.’

Powell appeared in court on Wednesday and pleaded not guilty to second-degree sexual assault.
